"I don't understand why she sounded so mediocre w/ GD. A monitor? Really?"

No! Not really. The real problem was that she was trying to harmonize with, but not totally destroy the kid's fragile ego, Bobby who was/is seldom on key. It has always seemed to me that most of Donna's "caterwauling" is tied closely to Mr. Weir's "testicles in the vice squealing".

That being said,I guess the lack of a monitor may have contributed somewhat.

Before I get tarred and feathered for Bobby Bashing, I will say that when he is on, he is good. When he's not on, he's the male Donna.

I'd only take issue regarding Weir being "on key." There's a big difference between having problems with pitch, and problems with expression. I think Weir was on pitch almost always, but he tried to do way too much with volume - shouting ruined his vocals, and distorting into falsetto could be worse. Garcia had much better control.

As to those shorts, however....
